Laurichesse Le Chai de Mon Pere Fût 301 Cognac
Laurichesse Le Chai de Mon Pere Fût 301 Cognac has been matured in a single French oak cask and bottled at a cask strength of 45% ABV without any color or additives. This Grande Champagne Cognac was distilled in the 1970s by Guy Laurichesse, whose son Olivier founded the Laurichesse Cognac brand with his wife Léa in 2018. It was produced with a 12hl still on the family property of Verrières, which remains there to this day. Only 388 bottles have been produced in total, making this an extremely rare Cognac to own.
Bottled as ‘Hommage’, this range is also known as Le Chai de mon Père (‘The Cellar of My Father’), seeking to highlight eaux-de-vie distilled by Olivier’s father. Each barrel of vintage eaux-de-vie has been carefully selected and bottled in its natural condition in order to highlight the skills and quality of Guy's work. It certainly gives a fantastic insight into the individual character of small-scale Cognac production.
Presentation of the Bottle
Tall and elegant with a slim profile and deep punt, this is a well-designed bottle that immediately catches the eye. The label is simple, printed on textured paper with hand-written details, including the cask and bottle number. For sales purposes in different countries, the bottles have been renamed Le Chai de Mon Pere, this has been reflected on the bottles themselves through the addition of a sticker on the label.

Great: Laurichesse Le Chai de Mon Père Fût 301
Dark golden colour with nuances of copper. The nose is inviting and fresh - lots of spicy dried oranges, dried orange peels, dried exotic fruits, soft leather and exotic woods. On the palate this cognac is oily and mouth-filling with lots of oranges again; a really fine freshness of fruit is followed...
Well balanced fruity and spicy grande champagne cognac.
Flavor: I get fruity flavor like orange and peach at first. As time goes by, there are pear and wood, spicy flavor as a good accent.

Laurichesse Le Chai de Mon Pere Fut 301
Nose: Holy spice-infused oranges! I’ve never tasted such an orange-forward Cognac before. The orange fruit is dominant; it is candied (not fresh); it is spicy, and it is full of character. It even smells as if some of the orange peel, with its zestiness and its bitterness, got in the mix. There...
About Laurichesse Cognac
Representing a connection between the past and the present, Laurichesse Cognac is a young brand created in 2018 by Léa and Olivier Laurichesse. The couple met in Segonzac, while Léa was studying viticulture and Olivier was already working on the family vineyard. Together, they decided to create a brand under which they could begin to release Cognacs created by Olivier’s father in the 1970s. This selection of small-scale, single-cask Premier Cru Cognacs shows a glimpse into the past; we’re keeping our eye on the future as well, considering Léa and Olivier are also the owners of a vineyard and distillery in the Grande Champagne region.
